Introducing Forza: the affordable quartz worksurface


Our range of affordable quartz surfaces is set to increase margins on worktop installs for housebuilders and kitchen retailers. The range has been developed specifically to deliver cost savings, while maintaining the outstanding quality that customers expect.



Forza by Athena – what’s the story?


We manufacture and install worktops for some of the UK’s largest homebuilders, supplying quartz, sintered stone, and granite worktop upgrades to complete kitchens. The materials we fabricate are huge a step above laminate in quality, finish, and durability.


Because of their quality, quartz worktops come with an increased material cost, particularly from the leading and most established brands. The price can impact the customers’ choice to upgrade and limit the profit margins to the housebuilder or kitchen retailer.


We saw a gap in the market for an affordable quartz surface material that would enable us to pass the savings to our customers. Forza is our own range of quartz worktops, developed exclusively for our customers. It’s the quality expected of a premium quartz worktop, at a lower cost. Housebuilders and kitchen retailers stand to increase margins on worktops sold, while providing their customers with a desirable product to complete their new kitchen.


For us, having our own range removes a step from the supply chain and enables us to manage our stock more effectively. We don’t need to rely on a third party to have the quartz materials ready to fulfil customer orders as they come in.

What makes Forza Quartz uniquely profitable?


The cost savings are the ultimate benefit. Housebuilders and kitchen retailers save on the raw materials, offering a product of equal quality and value to buyers. As a result, they increase margins. We save by supplying materials directly to our customers.


The quality and style of the range is the next big selling point. Forza Quartz has the same benefits as other quartz products on the market, at a smaller price point. We have designed the range based on our experience of the most appealing choices.


Our wealth of data on the most chosen colours and finishes enabled us to design a range of popular swatches for homebuyers to browse. The smaller choice offering, with clear pricing, makes the decision to upgrade easier for the customer in the showroom.
